We are designing a complex battery housing assembly -- this job is currently posted on Odesk. We are separating the artistic industrial design phase of the project from the mechanical design and engineering phase, and they shall be awarded as two separate jobs. It is unlikely they will go to same consultant but we will consider it if the skillsets are there.
Please see the attached work description for the entire project. The Section "INDUSTRIAL DESIGN GUIDANCE" of the attachment is the scope of work for this project. The scope of work being awarded here is for external industrial design concepts only.
Deliverable will be a solidworks CAD model of the outside shell of the battery that represents a look & feel that looks rugged and yet differentiates us from similar products.
We are looking for highly artistic approach with strong aesthetic product design that will differentiate this battery housing from normal "car battery" looking products it will replace. The industrial design will be handed off to the mechanical engineering team that will design the product from the inside out and they will utilize this to guide their.
The right consultant for this project will be extremely artistic and creative, with good experience with industrial design of consumer products while being able to deliver the concepts we collaboratively agree upon in Solidworks format. We are looking for someone who can generate new and unique concepts for us while taking our design theme inputs.
Speed is of the essence for this project -- you must be able to complete the work scope within 4 days. We will work closely with you and be available 24 hours for feedback no matter what your time zone. We require good english speaking partners.
